MILFS Outraged Over Suggestive Book Titles

I feel for this lady's son:
LYNNWOOD -- Marci Milfs went to Urban Outfitters to find clothes for her teenage son.

She was surprised to find sexually charged books that she believes have no place in a clothing store for teens and young adults.

On one end of the spectrum was "Porn for Women," a photo book showing men doing housework. On the other was "Pornogami: A Guide to the Ancient Art of Paper-Folding for Adults," a guide for making anatomically correct artwork.

"When I saw it, I was shocked," Milfs said.
Well, fine Marci, but according to your logic I should complain about your name being printed in a newspaper. Why should I have to explain to my make believe child what your last name stands for? Or for that matter, why should I have to explain to that same child what "cunt" means after I call you one? Do you think I want to be put in that situation Milfs?

Milfs called in the Morality Mod Squad after her complaints to Urban Outfitters were ignored.
Milfs was so appalled that she is preparing to file a complaint with the city of Lynnwood, and has already aired her frustrations to State Rep. Norma Smith, R-Clinton, and organizations including Morality in Media, Concerned Women of America and the American Family Association.[...]

Washington is behind the times, Peters [President of Morality Matters] said. This state's minor-protection law calls for access to be restricted on goods that are "utterly without redeeming social value," but the wording is not followed by "for minors," Peters said.

The vagueness of the state law creates a legal gray area, Peters said. Arguably, an item that is inappropriate for children might be allowable if it's found suitable for adults, he said.

"Even assuming these books don't violate the law, they are not nice books," he said. "If a typical mother invited neighborhood kids over, she wouldn't be leaving these books on her coffee table for the kids to peruse."

Milfs doesn't believe the books should be seen by children.

"It's not freedom of speech," she said. "It's selling adult books to teenagers."
Whew...Close one. For a second I thought it was about freedom of speech -- or as I like to call it -- the right to offend suburban housefraus (otherwise known as my Mom) with explicit conduct.

I've got a suggestion for Milfs everywhere who don't want to be confronted with words like "Porn" or "Paper-folding": Shop at Kohls.
